My drawer with my knives and spoons et al has been in horrible shape for a long time. At first we didn't have any dividers in there, then I made something out of a Cherrios box that worked really well until I bought more spoons and had to adjust it. Then it all went to crap. There was a 12 Days o' C-mas this past year and I've had this tute bookmarked/pinned since then. So today I decided to make some! I'm surprised I've only had it marked for 2 months before I got to making them! Proud of me, you should be.


I only tacked the tops of the corners rather than sewing all the way down.


Had to adjust the size for the bottom one but other than that the tute was perfectly sized for my purposes. Thinking about sewing them together down the sides for more stability, though. What do you think?

Before shot for reference:

Like it so much I want to do it for my drawers!

I might have substituted craft interfacing instead of batting though, for that stronger/straighter side support.  But I'm a strong believer in craft interfacing.

This is a brilliant idea!  So much prettier than the plastic tray I am using now... I should do this for my (very messy) cutlery drawer.

Thanks everyone!
-Jnet, I was thinking the same thing: washable is very much one of the reasons I made these. I'm about to have 3 kids in this house and that means EVERYTHING needs to be washable.

Great idea! Especially the fact that you could just toss them in the washer when you need to clean them instead of wiping down plastic that never seems to get clean...
